São Cirilo Community Centre in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim and Frederico Eça

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim and Frederico Eça

With an area of approximately 2000 squared meters (20m by 100m) and an irregular geometry, the plot had uncharacteristic dimensions and form for the city of Porto. The program was built along with the project – never before had a building in Portugal been specifically designed for the social integration of immigrants.

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Article source: Joao Morgado – Architectural Photography

This luxury hotel, Pousada de Cascais, is set within the walls of the historical fortress, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais. It is a place where ancient meets modern, and many of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks which makes each space a different experience, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the huge internal patio spaces.

House of Agostos in Faro, Portugal by Pedro Domingos

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Article source: Pedro Domingos

The transformative substance of this project consists of a parcel of land (950m2), that is integrated into the agricultural system of Barrocal and a small house in ruins (80m2).

The ruin of traditional genesis, displays the characteristics of the vernacular architecture of the Algarve.

The strategy consists on clarifying the limits of the central space of property – a void enclosed by the ruin and the “hedges” and the upland trees. The clearing delimited of this emptiness is made with the recuperation of the existing ruin defining the western boundary, with the construction of a new wing set back from the existing group, establishing the northern boundary and the setting of a water tank at the south end of the plot.

Chapel at CREU-IL in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

The program consisted in the extension of a small chapel at a University Centre in Oporto. The twenty year old Centre was implanted at the end of a private garden. The existing chapel was too small for the number of students attending services and there was a wish to extend it to an area of 50m². The assumptions were as followed:

– reduced costs;
– open the space towards the garden;
– maximum comfort for users.

The main ideas flowed poetic and swiftly… Many references blended into this rare architectural work, with a theme that had always been of our interest.
